Sisters: Kully's trip to India

We’ll have more on our exciting Sisters project in the Autumn, but in the meantime, read Kully’s blog about her experience on her trip to India...

I have just returned from an exhilarating, if somewhat exhausting, trip to Mumbai as part of our international collaboration with Junoon Theatre.  A collaboration made possible through the British Council/Wales Arts International and Arts Council Wales as part of the UK/India year of culture. Our project…

Kully reflects on her first year at NTW... and looks to the future

May 1st and it’s International Workers’ Day. It seemed an appropriate time to take a moment to reflect on my first year at National Theatre Wales and to announce some our future projects.

This time last year we were starting rehearsals for Before I Leave; an emotional rollercoaster of a play written by the talented Patrick Jones and inspired by the Cwm Taf Choir, made up of people diagnosed with…

Hey John! So, so sad I couldn't make it to your celebration tonight - still can't travel that far yet but I'm working on that! I hope you have a fabulous night. I'm sitting here in a very rainy North Wales wishing we could just get beamed-up to the Castle Arcade. Failing that not being possible in the next few hours, we wanted to say that, without you and Devinda and the ethos of NTW behind us, Film Team wouldn't still be going strong. We've got masses of exciting opportunities to take us to the next level next year, and, crucially, we're linked to the incredible Tate Circuit programme at Mostyn now. It's all good! And it's all thanks to you all giving us so many opportunities - and masses of fun along the way. Thank you from the bottom of our Film Team hearts John - see you in Manchester - it's much closer! Have a blast - love ever, Jan, Adam, Euan, Addie, Ameila & Holly xxxxxx

Hey John. I remember chatting to you about NTW casting not long ago, and following up from that I've seen the breakdown Sarah Leigh put out yesterday. Again its a case of ticking boxes, army training, Cardiff base, musical/dance ability, etc. Really hope I get a chance to audition for ou guys this time!

All the best.

I didn't say where I am based - in Mountain Ash, between Pontypridd and Aberdare.

Have been meaning to make contact since NTW began and a conversation with Carl Lavery has pushed me into action - he said 'I must talk to you'. I do find the approaches you have been finding in NTW inspiring and imaginative so its about time I got in touch! I grew up in West Wales and have been active making work as director and performer in the South West and Wales since 1996. For various reasons in the last 6 years I have been more engaged with teaching and research. I think it is time now to make work, be a practitioner again, I have a number of ideas which are perhaps 'at the edges of theatre' that I would like to develop, and am wondering how I might weave something into the NTW net(work). Could we have a chat sometime as I am not sure how my experience and skills best fit into the different channels of development you have at NTW? You can see some information on my profile page and my website is Best, Ailsa

Hi John - didn't get a chance to say hello or even goodbye yesterday... we'd had a punishing journey down on the rugby train and were under pressure to shove back on to get home again - 2 carriages! can you believe it???   we survived standing for 2 hours and got seats around Ludlow... despite that, Film Team had an amazing time - thanks again to you all for a fantastic party!

Hello John,

Really interested in getting more involved with NTW, despite my age! Any advice about Group/s to join please? Acting and Directing work to date mainly with schools, Colleges, and some Adult groups, but keen to do more and to network! Have offered to work on a voluntary basis at NTW if appropriate and required.
